Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

The class sizes are fairly large and it is hard to develop a relationship with a professor. You rely on your Teaching Assistants (TA) to help you get through the class. Georgia Tech was ranked number one for having the most difficult workload, but all of their engineering degree programs are ranked in the top 10.


Academics Rating

Classes seem to be on the large side. I would prefer a class with less than twenty students. I'm not sure about teacher assistants doing most of the teaching at GT. The business majors at Tech seem to be well off and with a good workload. However, this is not the case for engineering majors. It seems justified since GT is known for its engineering programs.
